Our director will be Mirja Lorenz. Mirja expects us to dance. Or, rather, to play Italian and French dances from the 16th century, pavanes, gagliardas, and saltarellos, as well as French Chansons from 1530 to 1550. These will be works by Jean Doublet, Robert Godard, Nicolas de Mal Marle, and—the coolest name of all— Nicolle des Celliers d’ Hesdin!
Our Feburary Newsletter is available now: February 2016

The January meeting will be on January 17th. Our subject this session will be Jazz recorder. Patrick O’Malley will lead us in understanding how to play Jazz on the recorder.
Following our playing session, we will have a special meeting. The board would like to solicit your ideas and opinions on the direction of the chapter.
